Top Ten Characters Everyone Loves Who I Just Don’t Get

Top Ten Tuesday is a fun weekly feature hosted by the fantastic blog The Broke and the Bookish. This week the topic is: Top Ten Characters Everyone Loves Who You Just Don’t Get. I have a feeling I’m going to create a disturbance with some of my picks (and I will be the first to admit many may be influenced by my salty attitude toward certain popular book ships). Time to stir up some trouble! Ron Weasley from Harry Potter: I’m sorry, I have never liked Ron from Day 1. He rivals Percy for being my least favorite Weasley. I […]

Top Ten Books I’ve Recently Added To My TBR

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by the fantastic blog The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is “Top Ten Books I’ve Recently Added to My TBR.” My list this week is a mixture of backlist books, recent releases, and upcoming releases in 2016. These aren’t on my physical-I-already own-TBR, but rather they are new additions to my Goodreads TBR over the past month or so. In no particular order: Not Yet Released: The Loose Ends List by Carrie Firestone The Problem with Forever by Jennifer L. Armentrout The Girl Who Fell by Shannon M. Parker The […]

Top Ten Books I Read in 2015

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by the fantastic blog The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is perhaps the most important of the year, choosing 10 of the 70 books I’ve read for the illustrious category of “best books I’ve read in 2015.” I’ve decided to not only list the ten best books I’ve read this year (in no particular order), but give them superlatives as a nod to their greatness. Most likely to encourage you to be yourself: Most nostalgia-inducing: Most worthy of the hype: Most likely to feed your royal addiction: Most likely to […]

Top Ten New to Me Favorite Authors I Read in 2015

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by the fantastic blog The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is focusing on the top ten favorite authors that are new to YOU, no matter how long they’ve been on the literary scene. I found that this year I read fewer books by “new to me” authors than last year, as I really focused on the authors who had impressed me during my first year of blogging. In backwards chronological order (starting with the most recent new to me authors I’ve enjoyed all the way back until January 2015), here […]

Top Ten Characters Who Should Totally Throw A Halloween Party

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by the fantastic blog The Broke and the Bookish. I really enjoyed making my Halloween list for TTT last year (Top Ten Characters I’d Want to Be For Halloween) and I wanted to think of a fresh new spin on it, as Halloween’s one of my favorite seasons. This year I decided to reflect upon which characters could throw an awesome Halloween party (which I’d be inviting myself to, of course). Fred and George Weasley from Harry Potter: How awesome would a Halloween party in Fred and George’s joke shop be? Wizards […]

Last Ten Books That Came Into My Possession

Top Ten Tuesday is a fun weekly feature hosted by the fantastic blog The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is Top Ten Books That Recently Came Into Your posession (bought/borrowed/library/etc). Since I just attended ALA a TON of books have come into my possession, so I’ll cover the ones I’ve received since then and the last ones I received at ALA time-frame wise (so Sunday afternoon). My list will also include recent pre-orders! 1) Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge- I LOVED this book when I got it from the library last summer, so when I saw it on […]


Stacking the Shelves [23]

Stacking the Shelves [23]

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly feature hosted by Tynga’s Reviews where bloggers share the books that they’ve added to their shelves this week, whether borrowed, bought, virtual, physical, etc! So this week I ended up with a bit of an unexpected mini haul! My boyfriend found a bag of books at his office abandoned by some co-workers who had attended ALA midwinter. Upon noting that they were YA and that no one else wanted them, he was able to give them to me! I’m super excited about All The Bright Places (the cover under the book jacket is GORGEOUS) […]

Top Ten Books That Make Great Beach Reads

Top Ten Books That Make Great Beach Reads

Top Ten Tuesday is a fun weekly feature hosted by the fantastic blog The Broke and the Bookish. This week I’m recommending Top Ten Books that are great for the beach- or any vacation. When I travel I like to have books that are fun and compelling without being anxiety-inducing; I don’t like to read books with major cliffhangers when I travel because I want to be able to put it down and enjoy the activities I planned for my vacation, rather than having a major book-hangover or rushing back to the hotel room to finish a chapter. So these […]
